Laeliocattleya Caprice

Laeliocattleya Caprice is in bloom in Sonoma right now with two spikes and seven flowers open it is quite a sight. This is a very tall plant and the flowers are very big.

It will need to be re-potted this year. I'll decide about dividing when I see the whole plant, but this is a favorite of Lillian's and I may try to let it get bigger. She certainly has the space for a few specimens.

  3. It isn't available from a nursery as far as I can tell. This plant was from Sea God Nursery which is out of business as a commercial grower, it just maintains the collection as part of the winery.

    Watch eBay, is all I can suggest. We will re-pot our plant this year but I doubt that we will divide it.
